Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol or THC is the most abundant and well-known cannabinoid. It’s also the primary psychoactive component in cannabis. THC binds to CB1 and CB2 receptors that are present throughout the body and make up the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Cannabidiol, or CBD, doesn’t intoxicate and at the molecular level, induces the opposite cellular response as THC. When used in combination, CBD enhances the therapeutic and enjoyable properties of THC.
THC potency varies from one cannabis product to another. Understanding the meaning of THC percentages, how the levels might affect you and determining the ideal ratio of THC to CBD can be a challenge. The knowledgeable budtenders from Pecos Valley Production welcome inquiries and thoroughly enjoy sharing information. Be aware that products including a higher level of THC most often produce more potent effects.
